The government of Karnataka, led by the Congress, has proposed a revision of school textbooks, leading to a heated political debate between the ruling party and the opposition led by the BJP. As part of this revision, the Karnataka government intends to eliminate a chapter dedicated to Dr. Keshav Baliram Hedgewar, the founder of the RSS.

According to reports, the current Congress-led Karnataka government has made the decision to remove a chapter on Dr. Hedgewar from the Class 10 Kannada textbook. This chapter had been introduced in the state syllabus during the previous BJP government’s tenure. The Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and School Education Minister Madhu Bangarappa reportedly reached this decision during a meeting focused on educational reforms in Bengaluru.

According to Congress MLC BK Hariprasad, the Karnataka government has decided against incorporating the life stories of individuals like Dr. Hedgewar into the school curriculum. Hariprasad went on to label the RSS founder as a “coward” and a “fake freedom fighter.” He emphasised that the functioning of government departments would not be influenced by the ideology of the Sangh Parivar.
